    The "Remember When" Thread...

    OFF-TOPIC 
    Haha, I was just thinking about this today. I have one and am curious if it was just me. Does anyone else remember going to the bathroom and reading random things laying around? Now we have cell phones to occupy us but I remember reading soap bottles, shampoo, toothpaste, etc when I was...

    Hi Walter! I've placed my first order from a Chinese manufacturer. Learning as I go here. I agree'd to 30/70 DDU terms for product/shipment. I have completed the 30% transfer to get production started. Now they want additional funds to deliver it to my door. They are asking for Customs Bond...

    Hiring on Upwork

    I just hired someone on Upwork to create a website for me. We came up with 4 milestones for payment. He is requesting that I pay the milestone before it is completed as a down payment. Is this typical? I have never used it before but my understanding was the work would be accomplished for each...

    My Crazy Idea ...

    IDEA 
    I have no idea what Beatz are. Like I said, maybe the person interested in using your service would get it. I have no clue though. I assume some sort of music. Maybe it is your personal music or maybe it belongs to multiple people. You mentioned a one stop shop, this makes me think it is from...

    Ask me anything about eCommerce (Ongoing)

    GOLD! 
    I know this type of thing is being discussed, so I wanted to provide a real life example. Ordered an item on Amazon on April 26th. Just received the below email today. Just thought someone may find some potential value in it. Yes, my name is actually in there twice. Whoops! Now as a customer, I...

    MARKETING 
    When you first got into this industry, what prior knowledge/experience did you have? How do you handle your direct mail campaigns? Do you write them yourself, hire someone to do it, or use a service?

    Damage Inc.'s Teespring Trials & Facebook Foray

    EXECUTION 
    I was checking out teespring.com/discover and noticed it was not very common to have >500 sales. What constitutes a good campaign? I realize that is dependent on how much you are spending in advertisement versus how many shirts you are selling but it seems like a couple hundred shirts sold means...

    The Process of Creating A Real Product

    HOT! 
    Near where I live, there is a bee farm. I've always wanted to stop by and try their honey but just haven't made the time to do it. The other day, one of their workers knocked on my door and was going door to door selling it. I paid $5 for the bottle which is fairly expensive compared to what i...

    Interesting thing happened to me. 2 days after my first item is listed, this guy contacts me and points out that I say I am offering 3 day shipping but am only offering First Class mail. Tells me I should change it before I get in trouble. I look at the guys sales history and he is selling the...

    Thank You, IceCreamKid

    INTRO 
    Two and a half months since I read the great ICK post. I'm still motivated to get the ice cream! I have realized I have a mental wall to break down that is going to be significantly difficult. Anyone have some dynamite I can borrow?! My wall is what I have heard termed as the scarcity of money...
